Description

Smartwood sliding windows use the sliding door frame but have a smaller bottom rail in keeping with the context. The complete door system can be used when large spans are required.

Continuous sightlines are possible across adjoining fixed lights if desired. 

Key Features
  • The Smartwood sliding window system uses the sliding door frame with smaller panel rails
  • Bi-parting sliding windows offer wide opening
  • Stacking configurations are available using the sliding door profiles
  • Exterior sliding system
  • Smartwood windows have an interior timber facing for aesthetic appeal and a hard wearing aluminium exterior
  • A variety of wood types available
  • A PVC thermal insulator between the aluminium and timber cladding prevents condensation transfer and enhances thermal performance
